*NEW* Fully struck on both sides with even chocolate brown patina and no spots or distractions and strong, complete luster. Absolute top of the grade and probably net graded down for a tiny clip at the top, virtually unnoticeable. A stronger clip would have made this coin an “error” and increased its value. With CU Price Guide at $3900, this coin is a great deal.
*SOLD - NEW* As pleasing as this grade can be, starting with a firm, even strike that resulted in complete design detailing front and back. Surfaces are distraction free and the color is a nice, even chocolate brown with slightly deeper patina in the recesses, resulting in strong eye-appeal.
*ON HOLD - NEW* A very pleasing Mint State example showing a full, even strike, mark and distraction free fields and good luster on even deep chocolate brown surfaces. Very scarce type in this lofty condition.
*ON HOLD - NEW* Needle sharp strike and superb surfaces are just the beginning of this fabulous Coronet Cent. A gorgeous blend of brown with violets and blues blend together to give this sparkling piece extraordinary Eye-appeal. Finished with glowing luster. Gorgeous type coin.
*Aspen Park Collection - HT-195, Portsmouth MA* Very choice uncirculated specimen of this Massachusetts Store Card. Even deep chocolate brown with considerable original RED in and around the lettering on both sides. Pop: 2-62, 3-63, 4-64, 0-65, 1-66.
A phenomenal Large Cent and among the best I have seen for ANY date. Fully struck on both sides with flawless fields and full luster over even chocolate brown patina. Original red in and around all devices front and back give this piece exceptional eye-appeal. A stunning coin and rare variety. Comps on Heritage Auctions show prices realized around $20K plus for NON-CAC coins.
*NEW* Well, I guess I paid a lot of money for this coin, but it was just irresistible. I would find no reason to argue if this coin was graded MS66RB. Fully struck and basically mark free, this coin is simply superb and GORGEOUS. Stunning chocolate brown and violet-rose patina and finished with GLOWING luster.
